We did this for a team building/outing and had an excellent time. I would recommend it for a work outing, friend outing, family outing, whatever that occasion might be.

I very much recommend this experience. The pro chef was engaging, entertaining, friendly ... and she managed to teach us how to make tacos online! We absolutely loved it.

We had such a great time at our cooking class! It absolutely exceeded my expectations! Lorena was so kind and welcoming. She got to know everyone's names and kept the whole group engaged throughout the class. It was a wonderful experience, and the tacos were beyond incredible! I thought I made a pretty good taco before coming to this class, but learning to make handmade tortillas and salsa took my taco cooking skills to the next level. So delicious!
